'll get our first indication of the strength of the event on the u.s. mainland, over the next 15 minutes and that is when forecasts show the waves will reach san francisco. whether or not they'll be damaging, or even noticeable, has yet to be seen. >> japan's east coast, hit with a 23-foot tsunami, shortly after the quake struck. police along the country's northeast coast, report finding the bodies of two to three hundred people, japan railways working to find a missing passenger train. while the government reports the giant wave swept away a ship, carrying about 100 people. >> unfortunately we expect to get more reports like those, 8.9 magnitude quake is japan's worst on record as we say, one of the worst in world history. and rocked cities hundreds of miles from epicenter an spawned dozens and dozens, as we hear it of aftershocks. >> look at one of japan's three nuke we're power plants, that are having some problems right now, the worst in the city of onahana where police ordered evacuations where a fire disabled a cooling system there. no reports of radiation leaking, secretary of sta
, and other u.s. officials and more pressure today from john mccain about what the military options might be. mccain now joining john kerry and others, calling for a no-fly zone and pushback from the pentagon, despite denials, i know, that the pentagon spokesman was on your show earlier at 9:00, saying that there has been no pushback. but certainly, what we've seen from secretary gates and the chairman of the joint chiefs, admiral mullen, is emphasizing all of the drawbacks to getting involved militarily there. chuck? >> well, you laid it out very well there, andrea. secretary gates yesterday, in referring to the no-fly -- the talk about the no-fly zone as loose talk certainly created the impression that there was somehow a little bit of a disconnect between the state department and the pentagon, about what is next, how serious is this idea for a no-fly done. so clearly, that's one of the questions that's going to be directed at the president later today. now, let's be careful, by the way, not to call this a press conference. they are only saying one question, for, quote, each side. >> one!
strategy for u.s. troops. late last night nato agreed to take over both the no-fly zone and the air war within days. on the ground, western air strikes have helped rebels recapture several town on the coast. the front lines now appear centered on sert, a town 225 miles from tripoli. joining me now, former ambassador to the u.s. who resigned in the wake of the libyan uprising. sir, it's good to have you with us. >> good morning. >> what are you hearing from the opposition forces on the ground? i know you are in contact with some of the rebel leadership about this push towards tripoli. >> what i think moving with confidence toward them and the resistance from the gadhafi regime is not a strong one. this morning there was some battles but not very heavy ones going on. and i think the people have confidence now, and thank you very much to the united states and the alliance who make the job of these people who are desperate to gain some freedom or some democracy. >> what do you think about the fact that u.s. forces are now pulling back? obviously the u.s. had been in the lead, pounded this c
for radiation exposure. japan is using helicopters to dump water on the reactors and scientists are helping to prevent a meltdown. >> we are first and foremost focusing helping any way we can to help the japanese government and the power company contain -- cool down the reactors and contain it and stop the leaking. >> reporter: u.s. helicopters are still flying in relief supplies. on the ground the search continues for survivors as the death toll quickly climbs. the good news for japan, the stock market there rebounded after two dismal days. u.s. markets may follow the trend today but with both a nuclear crisis and a humanitarian disaster, japan will face years of recovery. >> reporter: damages from the earthquake and tsunami are estimated between 150 and $200 billion without a possible nuclear meltdown. >> sherry, thank you very much. >>> let's get more information on the nuclear problems in japan. >> joining us now by phone, neal cheehan from the u.s. nuclear regulatory commission. good morning to you. >> good morning to you. >> we are looking at new assessments of this explosion and the

for questioning president obama's americanism. why mike huckabee says, and i'm quoting now, "most of us grew up going to boy scout meetings, not madrassas." i'm wolf blitzer, you're in "the situation room." >>> first to libya right now, where opposition forces are desperately struggling to fend off attacks from his supporters. president obama issuing his strongest rebuke yet against the bloodshed. >> the united states and the world continues to be outraged by the appalling violence against the libyan people. the united states is continuing to lead an international effort to deter further violence, put in place unprecedented sanctions to hold the gadhafi government accountable, and support the aspirations of the libyan people. we are also responding quickly to the urgent humanitarian needs that are developing. tens of thousands of people from many different countries are fleeing libya, and we commend the governments of tunisia and egypt for their response even as they go through their own political transitions. i have, therefore, approved the use of u.s. military aircraft to help move egyptians
in the fukushima plant 120 miles northeast of here. they are using helicopters to dump huge buckets full of water on the cooling pond of the reactor. pots of two other reactors are boiling at this time. the chairman warned there is no water left in the spent fuel of plant number four resulting in what is extremely high radiation levels. the japanese government nevertheless have no plan to expand the 12 mile exclusion zone. the u.s. ambassador to japan said the situation is deteriorating and warned citizens to leave the area or remain indoors. the state department said the u.s. government has chartered aircraft to help americans leave japan. we are also understand that any american citizen that has no money they can get a flight out from hanita airport and that allows them to get out of the country and they can pay back the u.s. government earlier. a lot of concern amongst the japanese people of what is going on. there is fingerprintic buying of goods. but at this time the sensor and what people are watching is over the next 48 hours of what will happen to the nuclear plant north of here. >> brian

. this is the task that susan b. anthony gives us to continue today. like anthony we too must challenge the status quo for the sake of women and their children. women deserve better than abortion. thank you and i will yield back my time. mrs. schmidt: thank you to the gentlelady from north carolina for so eloquently pointing out some of the dangers of abortion, both physical and emotional. and i don't think the chapter, mr. speaker, has been written on the dangers of abortion. but i do wonder the lives that we've missed and the fabric and how it has been compromised the fabric of america, the fabric of the world because an innocent life didn't get to be woven into it. you know, when we're born our parents don't know what we're going to become. they just hope that we're happy and they hope that we're healthy. i mean, you look at our president. you think when he was born his mom thought he was going to be the president of the united states? i seriously doubt it. he didn't come from a dynasty of presidents. he's just an ordinary person born from an ordinary mom, but he, you knee, had the opportunity
they would only hold out half that long. that does it for us. now it's time for "the ed show." have a good night. >>> good evening, americans. welcome to "the ed show" tonight. this is what's on the table tonight. the plot thickens. here we go with the secret order signed by the president, authorizing covert u.s. government operations to support the rebels in libya? that's our lead story with commentary tonight. we are headed towards a government shutdown to satisfy the tea party. that may be where speaker john boehner is willing to go. and congress and darrell issa, mr. investigation dude, says the president is corrupt. issa says earmarks are bad. but guess who supported earmarks that benefited himself. that's "the takedown" coming up tonight. >>> this is the story we start with, that has me fired up tonight. it wasn't supposed to go like this, but this is how it's unfolding. reuters reporting there are american boots on the ground in libya. president obama has signed a secret order authorizing covert u.s. government support for rebel forces in libya, officials tell reuters. the order was
us yesterday, it may be hard to understand why someone would jump off a cliff unless you understand they're being chased by a tiger. and that tiger is the tea party. in other words the gop is jumping off the political cliff right now and the tea party is that tiger chasing behind it. the latest example, a tea party leader calling for john boehner's defeat because he won't support the tea party's also after newt resigned after leading his party to a disaster after being reprimanded himself after being nominated on the family values republican party ticket? we'll find out. newt gingrich all but made it official today. on the subject of sex scandals, more evidence is surfacing that it could lead to an indictment for john edwards, misusing campaign funds or, in fact, using funds as -- that should have been a campaign contribution. finally, let me finish with the un-american effort on the right to convince people that president obama is somehow un-american. first of all i want to get the facts. here's radio talk show host ben fischer. let's listen. >> you seem to think there's some valid
landed on us before their clickers broke. "morning joe" starts right now. >>> i've made it clear that i will never hesitate to use our military swiftly, decisively and unilaterally when necessary to defend our people, our homeland, our allies and our core interests. for those who doubted our capacity to carry out this operation, i want to be clear. the united states of america has done what we said we would do. >> what are you annoyed at us for? we just wanted to know why we were bombing people. nobody said [ bleep ] to us. we were just sitting there, look, we're doing what we said we would do. >> last night nato decided to take on the additional responsibility of protecting libyan civilians. this transfer from the united states to nato will take place on wednesday. >> so there is an exit strategy. we turned over the mission to nato. man, i feel bad for whoever the sucker is that's the main driving force financially and weaponwise in that organization because those guys are -- wait a minute. we're nato! that's like beyonce saying she's seeding control to sash that fierce. >> welcome to
're not that much closer to a deal. >> gregg: to be fair, republicans are using some tricky math. they claim the total of proposed spending cuts is $102 billion but actually based on this year's budget, it's really $61 billion. both sides are guilty of mathematical deception but there will be a vote to us, harry reid announced it on both the proposals but they are not going to pass, are they? >> it looks like both will fail. i think that is what has to happen so the senate leaders can get their members to the table, they can say look, we have to negotiate. so there has to be a compromise. i think they actually have to go through those motions to convince members, hey, a deal has to happen. >> which brings plea to my next question. in the senate with new numbers, they do have enough votes to block any attempt to change the house bill. doesn't that mean that in reality the only way to fund the government is through house republicans? >> well, i don't know about that. i think everybody has a role to play here. democrats control the senate. they don't have 60 votes but they are in charge and pre
no radar emission from any of the air defense targeted and significant decrease in the use of all libyan air surveillance radar which appear to be limited in the areas around tripoli and surat. we are not ruling out further missile strikes if and when the need arises. in the past 24 hours, we also conduct air strikes on military facilities and aircraft from an airfield not far from misrata. next slide, please. these strikes were carried out last night east coast time bee 3 b-2 bombers dropping direct attack munitions. it shows an either view of air strike and this is airfield meaning it's used for civilian commercial traffic. you can see the area -- let me point it out to you -- in green in the center area. is where the commercial part is. the military hardened aircraft shelter are in the triangular shapes of the four corners. we targeted only those areas in those facilities outside. that support fighter aircraft. lear is depiction of one of the targets, one of the triangular portions, you can see the damage from the hardened aircraft shelters one kha we blown up here that was actually f
's very important to understand what general madis said today. what he said, that is if the u.s. decided to enforce a no-fly zone it would, first, involve u.s. military air strikes against targets inside libya. you'd have to bomb the runways. you might take out their aircraft or certainly their air defense systems, missiles, radar, and the like. so it would involve a u.s. military attack on libya itself. and if the white house makes that decision, of course, the u.s. military would carry it out. but i can tell you that there's a lot of hesitation, not only here in the building and among the u.s. military to take that kind of aggressive step, but even among the nato allies who would be essential if the u.s. and nato allies were to launch any kind of operation like this, and so far only the british are doing any kind of saber rattling in that regard. and the rest of nato nations, allies, are pretty much silent whether to launch any military operation against libya. >> give is insight on the three military war ships in the suez canal. what is their role, at this point? >> reporter: their ro
about the lack of air support from nato. as the u.s. and its allies consider whether or not to arm the ragtag opposition forces. providing arms could also mean sending in military trainers that would expand america's involvement even as president obama told brian williams that the u.s. has already accomplished its goals. >> now what we have done is accomplish what we set out to do at the outset, which is to make sure benghazi was not overrun and that thousands potentially of people were not killed. what we have also done is put gadhafi back on his heels. >> brian williams, of course, is the anchor and managing editor of "nbc nightly news" and joins me now. >> sometimes it is nightly noise. >> and most recently there is a lot of nightly concern about what is happening in libya what is happening with the rebels. you asked the key question. and asked whether or not we should be arming the rebels. let's look at part of that exchange. >> with all due respect, mr. president, watching the reportings of our two correspondents in libya, what it appears the rebels need is military equipment.
and if hopefully you find it useful and if so it will allow people who would never have the opportunity to work at the fat duck to learn those techniques, apply in the their own cuisine, maybe take it in a totally different direction. >> rose: richard engel, barney frank, and nathan myhrvold when we continue. every story needs a hero we can all root for. who beats the odds and comes out on top. but this isn't just a hollywood storyline. it's happening every day, all across america. every time a storefront opens. or the midnight oil is burned. or when someone chases a dream, not just a dollar. they are small business owners. so if you wanna root for a real hero, support small business. shop small. captioning sponsored by rose communications from our studios in new york city, this is charlie rose. >> rose: we begin with an update on the crisis in libya with richard engel of nbc news. first this, speaking at a joint press conference in chile, president obama defended the air strikes. >> i think it's very easy to square our military actions and our stated policies. our military action is in support
that will include a discussion of when the u.s. will hand over its lead role. french military officials say french pilot fired a missile at a libyan plane that just landed at a base in the coastal city of misrata. french jets, including some from the aircraft carrier charles de gaulle, seen here off libya, struck a libyan base 150 miles south of the coast. attacks in tripoli targeted a libyan military base depot. libyan state tv broadcast these images of the damage. and the african-american union has invited representatives from gadhafi's government and opposition representatives to talk in ethiopia's capital tomorrow. so far new york response from either side in libya. >>> we begin coverage with nbc news pentagon correspondent, jim miklaszewski. mik, what can you tell us about the incident involving that french fighter jet? >> reporter: u.s. military officials can't tell us very much. earlier today, members of that coalition on the american side said they had no evidence that there was a plane in the air or of any poe sentential shoot-dow. as we find out from the french, one of their war fighting
this morning. what can you tell us? >> good morning. we are seeing the storm take shape. if you're waking up in the northeast and seeing precipitation you're seeing one wave. we'll be watching now across the southeast -- it has all the ingredients for a classic nor'easter developing tonight and tomorrow. expect rain, wind, higherer elevation snows though from the poconos into new england. we have a number of winter storm warnings up into maine. winter weather advisories as well. notice who's out of it -- philadelphia, new york and boston should be mostly rain and wind. the totals anywhere from 6 to 9 inches in the hudson valley up to a foot or more in parts of interior new england. back to you. >> thanks. we'll have the rest of the forecast in a little bit. now to libya where the cia has had operatives on the ground for weeks. nbc white house correspondent chuck todd has the latest details. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, carl. here's what we know. while the cia has had operatives on the ground for weeks they have been gathering intelligence, trying to find the rebels you can work w

, democratic, free, moderate, modern libya. libya, all of us are muslim. sewn sunnies.as yo as you libyans. they are patriots. they are fighters. after jihad against the italians their sacrifice are quite clear. and we are proud of them. are our brothers. no difference between whether from beirut or -- we are united. we are one tribe. the tribe of libya. >> thank you.
